    damn, debian dumped the 32bit cd iso.

    it seems the latest buster 10.5 32bit cd iso was too big for a cd.

    my bad, should have specified, this is what i use : debian-10.5.0-amd64-xfce-CD-1.iso & it gives me just what i need a truly minimal installation, kinda like a linux ltsb.

    tried this too : debian-10.5.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso but it comes with lee-bra off-fix & a lot of other stuff i have no need for.

    have no experience with the non-free version.

    If you've installed Debian using automatic default partitionning and run it on ssd drive with more than 4Go Ram, you should avoid the swap file and rezize main partition for more space.
    If you are a confirmed linux user, i guess you know how to do manual partionning during installation, so this tips is useless for you.:)

    Ok so :

    Close Gparted if you've it installed.

    Open terminal as root :
    Code:
    sudo -i
    Disable swap partition :
    Code:
    swapoff --all
    Check for empty swap :
    Code:
    cat /proc/swaps
    Comment-out swap's partition UUID :
    Code:
    nano /etc/fstab
    For example : # UUID=1d3c29bb-d730-4ad0-a659-45b25f60c37d none swap sw 0 0
    You can also modify the fstab file using thunar as root.

    Comment-out the above UUID :
    Code:
    nano /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume
    You can also do it with thunar root.

    Don't close the terminal and open or install g-parted :
    Code:
    apt-get install gparted
    Select the right drive and right click, normally swap already disabled if not do it and apply change.
    Now right clic on swap partition and delete, apply change
    Select your main partition, right clic and rezize it to maximum amount, apply change.

    Recreate boot images :
    Code:
    update-initramfs -u -k all
    Update grub :
    Code:
    update-grub
    Reboot.
    windsman.

    1. what is the benefit of this tip? what i mean is, if you can explain why i need to do this? why is it good for me / my computer?

    2. this tip applies for ssd only or with hdd as well?

    b.t.w. i never dual boot, as in 2 / multiple operating systems on the same machine, 1 computer 1 os.

    hence when i do a fresh install, be it debian / ubuntu / windows, i let the os do the partitioning as required so no manual partitioning.

    No particular benefit, no particular issue unless you don't use extra large process, just gain some spcace on your active partition, you can apply it on both hdd and ssd (only with more than 4go ram).

    Some Linux installer like Calamares have a option during installation to avoid swap or not.
